Foals of Hope: UK Arts in HealthCare
When I first saw these foals at the Makenna David Pediatric Emergency
Center preview night I didn't realize their meaning. I simply thought
they were pieces of art that children would find colorful. However these
"Foals of Hope" were generously donated by LexArts and will be
auctioned to benefit the Kentucky Children's Hospital (KCH). The
three donated foals were designed by Lexington groups including Latitude
Artist Community, Kreative Catz and the UK Art Education Department.
They are being used to express their vision of hope for the future. What
better message for patients and families!
Tonight, Thursday July 8, 6-9pm there will be a collaborative
exhibition featuring the foals at Institute 193. They will be
on display at Institute 193 from July 8-15. I encourage everyone to stop
by to learn more about the project and the auction. See the following
Lexington Herald Leader article that highlights this event. Please visit
